Recently held at CVA in July: Big Dog Development Camp in Carrabassett Valley, Maine
Skiers & snowboarders had their choice of developing individual goals on the trampolines, in the skatepark, in the weight room or in the gym while enjoying a fun and supportive team environment with CVA’s world-class coaches. Over the four days, campers improved their strength, power, agility, endurance, balance and overall athleticism, the keys to long-term sporting success.
Mornings were dedicated to skill development within a customized focus, and afternoons were spent exploring and playing in the area around Carrabassett Valley. Afternoon activities included swimming, biking, hiking and field games including soccer, kick ball and disc golf.

U14 Alpine athletes took their on-snow training indoors - yes indoors - during a recent summer session at Big Snow American Dream. This facility is North America’s first and only indoor, real-snow, year-round ski and snow resort.
The focus of the 3-day session was to improve athletes timing of a slalom pole touch and develop the balance needed to make carved 1 ski turns. Due to the layout of the park, athletes were able to spend lots of time on-task on consistent snow surfaces, making about 20 runs in a 2 hour session, resulting in tremendous progress.
When they weren’t in the snow park, coaches brought athletes outside for Rollerblade training and conditioning drills. They also enjoyed the spectacle of the incredible American Dream complex.Upcoming: Laangraff, Holland in August
This trip will be for U16/19 athletes currently enrolled with the Academy, but may be opened to others if space is available.
